A tutorial how to get ready for IRC in 10 minutes

Set up your JOTI station in 10 minutes

Chatting live on the Internet is easy! Keep reading and follow the next procedure:
in 10 minutes you can discuss real-time with other scouts from all over the word.

STAGE 1 - Download
mIRC Get the mIRC client program used for chatting under Windows from our software page and save it on to your computer.

Users of MacOS/Unix/Linux/freeBSD can simply take an other client for chatting from our software page.
How does it work ?

Live chatting is like if you were talking on the phone, but instead of using your voice, you work with your fingers, on a "chat channel". The technical details behind this will be explained later.

To discuss with others on the Internet, you need to connect to a server: a larger computer who distributes what people write to all other participants. The server also forwards the messages to other servers, so that more people can see and chat with each other. Such a group of servers is called a "network".
The program you use to connect to the server is called an "IRC client". There are several dozen clients available, we've selected three popular ones for you.

STAGE 2 - Installation

Install Double click on the installation program icon first.

After the welcome screen (press "Next") and the license agreement (press "Yes") the window on the left side appears on the screen. Choose the options according to the the picture and press the "Install" button.

STAGE 3 - Ready, set and go!

Startmenue Start the mIRC program from the start menu. When you see the "about mIRC" dialog box on the screen, press "continue" to go on.

You see on the screen the Options window : if it's not the case, press the button on the toolbar.

Fill in the "Full Name" and "Nickname" informations like you can see on the left picture.

  • Full name is your prename, you must enter it if you want to connect to an IRC server.

  • Don't enter your E-mail address, just enter a dash.

  • Nickname is the name people will see and call you on the chat.

Now change to the Category "Server" and press the "Add" button to enter the details about the server you're going to connect to. The next window appears on the screen.

Complete the first three lines like you can see on this left picture. Instead of "" you can also enter the name of the closest server from the IRC Server List. When you're ready to continue, press the "Add" and the "Connect to IRC server!" buttons.
